Changing Lives. Changing the World.


Embracing the example of Jesus, we welcome you here with hearts
that know no boundaries of age, race, gender, ethnicity,
sexual orientation, ability, or economic circumstance. 

Church is not cancelled!

As Christ followers we care for one another, our communities, and the world. While we are staying home and staying safe, we are continuing to worship, connect, and care online. Our Sunday worship services are live streamed and archived. Existing Journey Groups (adult small groups) are continuing to meet and new ones are forming. Youth and Young Adults are meeting online and faith formation resources are being provided for children and families. In addition, Amplify Media is now available, providing members and friends access to digital faith formation resources for all ages.
